New Survey says 74% of Nigerians want to migrate, Nigerians react

A survey carried out by the Pew Research Center between February and April 2017 has said that 74% of Nigerians would go to live in another country if they had the means and opportunity.

The research surveyed in six of the 10 countries that have supplied many of the sub-Saharan immigrants now living in the U.S.

The research lists unemployment, low paying jobs, political instability, and conflict as some of the reasons people want to leave.

The survey also revealed for Ghana, it’s 75%, Kenya: 54%, South Africa: 51%, Senegal: 46%, and Tanzania: 43%.

Nigerians reacted to the information once it was released on Twitter with many claiming that the survey was wrong and the right percentage was 99.99%. Even Ghanaians got into the mix. See below.
